God sommer!

Denmark, 2012 // Fuji Velvia 50, Canon EOS 500N

It's time for a little summer break here at Hei Astrid. We are off to a summer house in Denmark with friends and the family holiday home at Voss with family, plus a few days at home and several days of hiking. And I'm going to my cousin's wedding in Trøndelag at the end of July (which reminds me: I need a dress!). I'm not bringing my computer for my travels, so I'm signing off this space for a while. Here's to a fun filled, happy summer holiday!

By the way, I won't stay away from social media completely; I'll still update my Instagram. Lets stay in touch; I'm halloastrid!

PS: Here is my God sommer (which means happy summer) Blurb book, if you are interested to have a look.

life, week 26

unlimited iPad access // the perk of being poorly

She was recovering from a fever the day before, so she didn't go to kindergarten. She stayed in her pyjamas all day and made the stairs her new playground - both for building lego...

... and watching (more) cartoons on Netflix. 

Sverre keeps me company whilst I empty/load the dishwasher and make breakfast porridge for both of us. I like our morning routine.

Found the journals I've been (almost desperately) looking for. Such a relief! Slowly getting back to (handwritten) journaling lately. And kind of thinking of closing my blog...

He is such a mama's boy these days. Sometimes it makes me crazy. This too shall pass...

We promised her a reward after a whole month of behaving well at bedtime. She talked about My Little Pony the whole month (just like the one her friend in kindergarten has), but then she chose this and made her pappa proud. 

Oops I did it again! Came in for a curtain rod and left with a bag full of things that we apparently need. Oh IKEA!

The worn out panda had a blast with her cousins who came for an unexpected visit. 

Saturday 11 pm. The big question is: should I have a third glass of wine (first time since New Years 2014/2015 when I got pregnant with Sverre) even though I'll most likely be woken up at 5:30 am tomorrow?

starting our Sunday right // dusting of the juicer - made a big batch of green juice too

Sunday stroll in my parents' back yard. It was also Sverre's child carrier debut. He screamed the whole time. Hopefully he will learn to love it like his sister did.

zzz // can't remember the last time it happened

Monday 4:05 pm • in the car outside Sara's kindergarten • massive rainshower • Sverre is sleeping • #momlife

evening walk // just me - just what I needed

not quite appropriate footwear 

A field of wildflowers in the sunset - SO happy to see this! Just wished I had my film camera to capture it properly.

They are so, so good now!

beach time - Arctic north version

We spent the weekend in Tromsø visiting my sister, her sweetheart and their toddler son. On Saturday we drove to Brensholmen and spent the day at the beach collecting pebbles and shells (Sara loves treasure hunting like this!) plus admiring the breathtaking landscape. I do wish my sister and her family lived closer to Stavanger (Tromsø is a 3,5 hour flight away); on the other hand it is nice to have an "excuse" to visit Tromsø and the majestic north.

life, week 24

Because a stroll in the sun is always a good idea, especially to chase away gloomy minds.

oh summer // forever inspired by nature

one of my favorite summer flowers

We finally got a waffle iron and I'm hooked.

9 months today // oh the endless clutter

Eating liver paté from the box whilst watching "Let it go". Afternoon good times with my 4,5 year old.

So happy to see these two together again.

The cutest tiger came home with me today.

8:15 am nap time pram walk // why bother with a blanket

home alone at my parents' place - well, no parents but plus (sleeping) kids

this guy

Sometimes it is ok to be inside and watch a movie even though it is a beautiful evening outside. Especially when the rest of the house and garden are a complete mess because of pappa's office summer party last night.
